Default access notebook external hard drive without formatting

I've got a LG labtop that contains very important information on the hard disk. Unfortunately, the computer crashed. What I did was I bought an external case and put the labtop's hard drive to there and connect it to my desk top. The desktop recognizes the external hard drive and said it is healthy from disk management. However, I can't explore it, the computer said I need to format it which is something I don't want to do
Can u guys please help !!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Thanks

you need to use recovery software to get your data back, i personally like GetDataBack or File Scavenger

My labtop can't be booted up cause the OS is stuffed up. But my desktop can't recognize the external hard drive. I just wonder that how can the program back up while the my desktop can't recognize it?
